Would this be a trademark issue with this domain?

    I am looking to start up a business and the domain I have registered is something like:

    metalforcash.org

    There is already a domain that is trademarked named metal4cash.com. Would I be unable to use this domain due to the uncertainty it could cause possibly?

    No. There is a letter instead of the word. Different name. If they wanted the name entirely, they'd have bought that domain before you.

    Don't think so, it's a generic name, plus it's not the same one

    Check to see if the TM registration is for a logo or the word itself (standard character mark). If it is the word itself, the TM owner would have grounds to claim that your domain is confusingly similar and could recover it under certain circumstances.
